One of McHenry County’s most wanted fugitives was arrested Wednesday on warrants for aggravated criminal sexual abuse and aggravated battery.

Brandon A. Williams, 21, of the 5700 block of 95th Street in Milwaukee, was apprehended Wednesday in Milwaukee by McHenry County investigators and U.S. Marshal’s Service officers after the McHenry County Sheriff’s Office received a tip last week that he was in that area.

Williams was wanted in McHenry County in connection with a November incident where he is believed to have sexually abused and choked a juvenile female. He was also wanted in Kane County on drug charges and in Cook County for traffic offenses.

Williams was taken to Milwaukee County Jail, where he is being held on $50,000 bond for his McHenry County charges. He will be transported to Illinois for a future court date.
